Athletics: The athletics at school are involved at school like any individual attending college, where they want an education to further their careers. The fan support here is widely spread throughout the whole school, to every student representing the mascot as wearing shirts, jackets, and etc.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Sacramento State University has been an unbelievable experience from each class and learning the campus. The college experience here has been a challenge that I have learned to overcome so far that I would not change my answer to coming to this unique school. This opportunity I was given was with hard work and if I could do this all over again I would because at the end it would worth it to learn from people and professors here.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: From the time I've been in school there has only been a few incidents in the four years I've been here but the campus is safe and has shuttles to take you to your car if your on campus late at night

Athletics: They have a state of the art gym that students are able to use that is amazing

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great school. Teachers I've had are very knowledgeable in their fields in engineering

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Only if you live far, far away. Get off-campus as soon as you can. Super expensive and the meal plan is garbage.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Their clearly into it. However, you don't need to be in one to have a social life.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: It's very accessible and can be fun. We get into it occasionally but it's not a big deal all of the time. Unless you're friends with the people already involved.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All the teachers I have are nice, helpful, and knowledgeable about their subject. Some of the classes are small or crowded, but I'm still able to pay attention and get the information I need.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've only been here for three days but so far I haven't seen or heard anything that made me feel unsafe.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Aside from the parking issue, I've had a good experience here during he past three days and its becoming easier to find my way around the campus.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: From what I heard from my roommate's friend, being part of the Greek life is similar to what most watch in movies. There are lots of parties, pay to earn fake friends, and it is a waste of time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
